Too Big?

Last night I called up the local building supply company to see what lumber costs might be for the roof framing of the building pictured here. A very rough guess brought me to about $10,000. This started me thinking that this plan is too ambitious. Yes, we all would like a nice living room, lots of storage and a comfy kitchen, but I'm starting to think it's too big for our budget.

So, I cut down the plan too see how big our minimum requirements might be. They're pictured here in a plan that provides only a kitchen, bath and shower, plus a little storage space. This building would quite a bit less than the above, the roof framing being about $3000. But, I question whether this smaller kitchen would serve the camp needs, especially if we're considering renting the place out to others. It provides no place to go when it's cold.
